Prompt: A book by an author whose first and last names start with the same letter


I won a free copy of this book through Goodreads Giveaways.

Is this self-published? It feels self-published. 400 pages in and it still feels like nothing has happened. Also, who proofed this because if I see i-phone or mini-frig one more time, someone may have to die.

In what world would a millennial ever use the phrase fair to middling? And call his mom Moe? Also, mom Abbey is a

This book really surprised me... Was looking for a thriller and this is certainly that... The surprising part was that the plot and setting were so well researched that I feel like I was a participant in the story... Abbey Brennan, the protagonist, is a young single mother who takes a new job working for San Bernardino County's Child Protective Services and finds that an agency that is supposed to protect children is not what it seems... and soon she is involved in investigating and trying to pr ...more

Seeing the great reviews this book had on Goodreads made me excited to receive a free copy of this book on Goodreads. I will admit I can be a harsh critic when it comes to mystery and thrillers. I love it when the author has me on the edge of my seat or just an unpredictable plot.

The plot was unpredictable in this novel, but I believe what made me dislike this novel was how the various points of view jumped around. Also, there were times when the plot did not flow and I caught myself wondering

A single parent tries to better herself with a new job while studying for a law degree online only to get caught up in a criminal world of drugs and prostitution including employee theft by her boss who is stealing money from the foster care program he supervises. Her son becomes a victim of her entanglements, and a pretty complicated plot unfolds. The weakest element of the novel is the lack of editing: too many misspelled words and sloppy references.

This book was not what I expected. It has many characters and layers. It is complicated and not a light read, however unpredictable and well written. I figured l would rate it a 4 or 5, and went with a 5 because the story stayed with me. I would definitely recommend this book to those who want more than a easy beach day read.

As I started the novel I was intrigued by Baby's story. I found the storyline to be unique and captivating. As the book went on I started to found the pacing slowing down, and I started to lose interest, and found there was so many parts to the story that it made it hard to connect with it.

I received this book through the goodreads giveaways program.
Abbey gets a job as a social worker. When one of her clients ends up dead, she feels obligated to get to the truth.
Really tough to follow. The story doesn't really pull you in, and goes off on tangents that are unnecessary. The language was really awkward and seemed to get worse as the book progressed. For example, shoulder hoister instead of holster. There were missing words- "out of mind", instead of "out of HIS mind". Character's n
